Meanwhile, the BBC takes a look at the aftermath, and finds a lot of camaraderie:
When the Sony DADC centre in Enfield was set on fire by rioters some in the industry warned it could be a “watershed moment” for small independent labels already struggling with the threat posed by digital downloads and illegal file-sharing.
But one year on the centre is poised to reopen and there have been no reports of labels going bust as a result of the arson attack.
So how has indie music risen from the ashes of the England riots?
